Where your money goes
As Hft is a charity, we understand the importance of making every penny count. We’re partially government funded to provide basic support that is person-centred and designed to achieve the best possible outcomes for the people we support – but that funding can only stretch so far.
That’s where donations come in. Your donations make a big difference in helping us support adults with learning disabilities to live the best lives possible, by giving us the means to pay for the ‘added extras’ that really change lives.
These are just some of the ways your money is spent to support people:
- £25 could fund a member of the Luv2meetU team to support two people on their first date.
- £50 could provide someone with a one cup kettle that helps them safely make a cup of tea without needing the assistance of a support worker.
- £100 could pay for a keysafe, giving someone the freedom to leave the house without worrying they’ll forget their keys.
- £200 could fund a video doorbell system, helping to allow someone to live safely and securely in their own home.
- £350 could pay for someone to have an epilepsy sensor installed in their bed, meaning staff can be alerted quickly if a seizure is detected.
- £500 could buy an adapted bike, giving people a chance to exercise and spend time enjoying the outdoors.
- £800 could fund a club night run by Luv2meetU, giving people with learning disabilities the opportunity to socialise and build new relationships.
- £1,000 could pay to put in place a Positive Behavioural Support plan, complete with sensory equipment suited to a person’s individual needs, to enhance their life.
- £2,000 could transform a garden at one of our services into a tranquil space filled with sensory items, ranging from raised flowerbeds to textured paths and reflective items.
- £2,500 could fund equipment and editing time for a news show led by people with learning disabilities for one year, providing them with a platform to share their stories and showcase their achievements.
Whether it’s a one-off donation, a regular payment or perhaps even a gift in your will, your generosity can make a real and positive difference to the lives of the people we support, helping them live with more independence and choice.
